My good friend Maria turned 40 at the weekend, and we had an AMAZING party to celebrate - I haven't had any wine since, lol - anyway, we all clubbed together and bought her an extremely expensive but gorgeous Orla Kiely wallet, which she was ecstatic about. But I decided I ought to celibrate the occasion by drawing a portrait of her beautiful daughter Hanna and this is the result. I agonised over it for quite a while, but eventually managed to finish it, and I think she liked it:))
While I was rummaging about in the undergrowth that is my craft room, i found this one I did when I was in my Kevin Costner phase (Dances With Wolves - god I love that film!)
They are both done in pastels with the odd bit of pencil, and although I like the one of Kev, I think I overworked it, so I tried to be a bit 'looser' when I did Hanna - still need to practise at that, tho.
Am still looking for the perfect picture of Alice to do......
